THE BITE premiering March 2021
In this new scripted podcast from the creators of The Blondes, the wolves aren’t just on Wall Street anymore. The Bite is a 4-episode horror comedy series that follows Tess, a young Brooklyn playwright, who awkwardly stumbles into joining a wealthy all-female werewolf pack in the Hamptons.
Tess is like any other struggling playwright who’s made it to Edinburgh Fringe: she mined her complicated life and decisions about monogamy and sexuality for material. And what would a one-woman show be without embarrassing revelations? But in the first episode of The Bite, Tess also reveals something altogether different: that she has lycanthropic powers. Being a werewolf has complicated her dating life but also greatly improved her career options, especially after she’s taken in by a clique of monied heiresses headed by Diane, a seductive, sociopathic bon vivant. She attempts to mold Tess, but will Tess fight to remain her own person?
